Fly Me to the Moon...


The moon is my muse. I can't resist gazing skywards - I'm Moonstruck, pure and simple. (I loved the movie too)

I've painted the moon numerous times: inserting it in children's books, paintings and illustrations. I think about my large-sized drawing of an owl sitting on a winding staircase, with the moon - full and bright - hanging over head. Sadly, the drawing might not get the watercolor treatment. (my medium of choice)  These days, novel writing is my singular focus. Art was a long chapter in my life - a chapter full of conflict and tears! Hopefully, art will be in my epilogue too.  

More than anything, I've photographed the moon. Photography is threaded through the narrative of my everyday. I love the perfection of photography - something I could never achieve with paint. There's no improving the awe and beauty of Mother Nature. 

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, I created a super-moon filled post. 

Look up...


















I love this series.

Your photos are awesome! I get a lot of clouds during the eclipses and such so your photos are exciting for me to see!

The moon images are amazing, just like the moon. No doubt art is in your epilogue, if not present. :-)

Amazing photography Sharon. You took us traveling to a very exotic place this week! (I often suffer from travel envy when reading your posts... this week maybe not travel envy, just photographer’s!). Thanks for sharing the awe.
